Finding the right pharmacy can be tough. Things like distance, accessibility, and product selection (or lack thereof) can make or break your pharmacy experience. Even though it seems like every pharmacy in the world is a CVS or a Walgreens, great independents still exist—you just have to transfer your prescriptions to them.

If you’re strapped for time here’s the TL;DR: Call us and say you’d like to transfer your prescriptions or fill out our online form. We’ll get some basic information and take care of the rest!

Transferring prescriptions sounds like a complicated process. The truth about transferring prescriptions is the opposite. Here are the steps to follow if you would like to transfer your prescriptions to a new pharmacy:

  1. Call or visit the new pharmacy and let them know you’d like to transfer your prescriptions. Provide the pharmacist with your name, date of birth, address, phone number, and any drug allergies.
  2. Provide detailed information on your current pharmacy including pharmacy name, physical address and telephone number.
  3. If you have a list of medications you are currently taking, share that information with the pharmacist. If you’re not sure, let the pharmacist know and they’ll gather the necessary information from your previous pharmacy.
  4. When you’re ready to pick up a new prescription, bring your up-to-date insurance information. You can also provide this information over the phone in advance.
  5. What if you’re not currently on any medications? Next time your doctor writes a prescription and asks where to send it, tell them the pharmacy you would like to switch to (If you’re in Naperville, remember to say Oswald’s Pharmacy!).

That’s the whole process! No messy break-ups with your ex-pharmacy—the new pharmacy will handle all of the information for you.
